Consumer Daily Reports

Whether you’re buying or renting a single-family home, prices are retreating from their historic highs. 

CoreLogic, a global data provider, reports rents on single-family homes fell from June to July, even though they were up 12.6% year over year. Rents were even down in popular Sun Belt markets that have seen rental costs skyrocket.

In an article with the provocative headline, “The Housing Market Is About To Get Hammered,” Clare Trapasso, deputy news editor of Realtor.com, reports a housing correction is already underway and mortgage rates north of 6% will likely deepen it.

“Higher mortgage rates combined with still-high home prices are making it challenging for homebuyers as we head into what historically has been the best time of the year to find a better deal,” says Realtor.com Senior Economist George Ratiu. “Something has to give.”

But how much will it give? Most experts say it depends on the market.

Alex Platt, principal agent with the Platt Group, part of Compass Real Estate in Boca Raton, Fla., has seen activity slow in the upscale coastal market, halfway between Miami and Palm Beach.

“Six months to a year ago, it was on fire,” Pratt told ConsumerAffairs. “There was no inventory, everything was selling off-market, there would be bidding wars. It’s not like that anymore, those days are gone. Right now, what’s happening is a nice, bright, updated home – especially if it has a pool – it still sells quickly for a good price. If a house is older, in need of some updates, it’ll sit a little bit longer, as it should.”

Back to normal

Pratt says the market is returning to a pre-pandemic “normal.” Going forward, he says there will probably be more room for negotiations between buyers and sellers but there is such an all-time low of inventory there would have to be a lot of houses coming up for sale at once to bring about huge price reductions. 

“Could there be a correction? Sure. Prices doubled in the last two years. So even if prices come down 10% or 15%, we’re still up,” Pratt said.

But a correction is not a crash, which is what the housing market experienced at the end of 2008 when a tidal wave of foreclosures – sparked by defaulting subprime mortgages – tanked home prices.

Why 2022 is not 2008

“Prices were high and they were giving mortgages and allowing just anybody to buy first homes,  and even second homes,” Pratt said. “Banks made changes to the system so today people are qualified for a purchase and we aren’t going to see a crash like we did in the past.”

One other thing contributing to the 2008-09 market crash was how banks treated repossessed homes. Pratt said they practically gave them away. They didn’t make repairs but sold them to investors at rock bottom prices, further tanking home prices.

“The banks have gotten smart, they know houses have value and they aren’t just giving them away,” he said. “Now, banks would happily take the home in a foreclosure because the value is higher than what people owe on it.”

Lisa Sturtevant, the chief economist of the Bright MLS, the multiple listing service covering the mid-Atlantic region, tells Realtor.com that mortgage rates are the key to the nation’s housing market. Higher rates may cause price declines in smaller markets that saw the hottest growth but probably not for the nation as a whole.

Sturtevant said she believes the demand for housing remains great at a time when the shortage of homes available for rent and purchase is too significant for prices everywhere to fall sharply.

Learn more at https://ftc.gov/coronavirus. ********************************** Transcript: Hi, I’m Becca Kelly Slaughter, Acting Chair of the Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency. You’ve probably heard the great news that the American Rescue Plan is now law. That means lots of people will soon be getting desperately-needed economic impact payments—some folks call them stimulus payments—of up to fourteen hundred dollars. Many of you have been here before, so you know these funds will come through direct deposit, check, or debit card. But we here at the FTC would like to remind you that scammers follow the headlines, too. So here are a few sure ways to spot a scammer trying to take your money or personal information. First, know that nobody in the government will ask you to pay anything up front to get your economic impact payment. There’s no way to get your payment faster, and there’s no form to fill out. That’s simply a scam. Second, the government will not call, email, text, or message you on social media to ask for your Social Security, bank account, or credit card number. Anyone who does is a scammer. Third, anyone who tells you to pay by money transfer, gift card, or cryptocurrency is a scammer. No matter WHY they say you need to pay. If you spot these scams, tell the FTC at ReportFraud.ftc.gov. Every report helps us try to stop scammers. And let me say a word to would-be scammers: the FTC will use all of its enforcement authority to come after bad actors who try to take advantage of people anxiously awaiting relief. To learn more about avoiding pandemic-related scams, visit FTC.gov/coronavirus. And help us spread the word. Share these tips and this video through your network. Thanks for helping us protect people from scams. ********************************** The Federal Trade Commission deals with issues that touch the economic life of every American.
